THE identity of a woman who died in a Southampton fire has been revealed.

Christina Troth, of Bullar Road, was found dead by fire services at her flat on December 3, her inquest in Winchester has heard.

Fire services were called to the address and found the 63-year-old inside.

The cause of death was given as severe burns.

Area coroner Jason Pegg adjourned the inquest at Winchester Coroner's Court to take place on July 27.

As reported, the fire last month ripped through flat in Bullar Road causing thick black smoke to billow into the air.

The blaze also left one person hospitalised with non-life-threatening injuries.

The route was closed off while emergency services evacuated neighbours.
